The four remaining defendants in a Bakken oil leasing scam that duped unwitting investors across the country out of hundreds of thousands of dollars were found guilty on most charges on Wednesday by a Montana jury.
A Texas company has bought federal oil and gas leases on almost 75,000 acres in northeastern Montana's McCone County in a move that could portend a significant westward expansion of the Bakken oil patch.
WILLISTON, N.D. — Natural gas production in the Williston Basin could more than quadruple current levels, pushing North Dakota into a more leading role in supplying the U.S. natural gas market, according to a study released Wednesday.
SPEARFISH, S.D. (AP) — Representatives from several industries are going to be on hand in Spearfish May 2-3 to learn about the effects of the North Dakota oil boom on people and businesses in South Dakota.
North Dakota will set a crude oil production record in 2011, if the present trend holds. This is after a rough winter and a tough spring, in which worse-than-normal weather conditions hampered work on rigs and restricted traffic on roads in the oil patch.
The state’s workers and economy have benefited mightily from the oil production.
Will the oil gushing from the Bakken Formation in western North Dakota someday free the United States from dependence on foreign oil?
Just how much oil is out there? Does the Bakken contain more oil than Saudi Arabia?
Many of the answers to these and other “frequently asked questions” posted on a U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) website (http://tinyurl.com/44zw7lx) are hedged, dodged and qualified as much as questions about the future of Medicare, but they do provide a helpful primer for people wanting to know what’s happening today in the booming Williston Basin.

BISMARCK — A Texas company is proposing a pipeline that could transport up to 75,000 barrels of crude a day from North Dakota’s booming oil patch to U.S. supply hubs in Oklahoma and Illinois.
Plains All American Pipeline LP of Houston said the 103-mile Bakken North Pipeline would run from North Dakota’s northwest corner through northeast Montana and to the U.S.-Canadian border. In Canada, it would link to an existing pipeline system capable of carrying crude to Oklahoma and Illinois.
